    Re: Need a Lutens jedi

    The code (on the lower right on the back of the box, printed in black) looks like MUD01? or MU001? I think it's MUD01 though.

    Need a Lutens jedi

    A few weeks ago a very old looking bottle (bell jar) of Chergui popped up on eBay. After correspondence with the seller, it appears the bottle was purchased at a pharmacy in Rome around 2007. He said...
  90. Re: Which SL fragrance has full lutens style in juice?

    To me nothing smells more "Lutens" than Santal de Mysore. It is his definitive oriental, exotic, spicy fragrance. It's incredibly bold and one of his more love it or hate it fragrances. In winter...

    Re: Having Perfumes on Hand for 'Lady Friends'

    Gotta say I find this to be a horrible idea. Pretty much every woman I've dated kept at least a travel atomizer (if not a bottle) in her purse or car. I think buying a fragrance for a woman on the...

    Re: Idole de Lubin - Review

    Palm: I was going to add to my post if you have one I wouldn't be too concerned about getting the other. The EdT is amazing juice and if it had been swapped out with my EdP I doubt I'd ever...

    Re: Idole de Lubin - Review

    My Idole (EdT) sample arrived yesterday. The forum was down but as promised I did the side by side with EdP vs EdT. In an effort to make the side-by-side as accurate as possible I emptied the EdT...

    Re: Santal Majuscule by Serge Lutens

    This is why I prefer to pay 5 bucks for a sample rather than wait 3 months for the possibility of a freebie. Unfortunately it's not that great of a fragrance anyways.

    If he can release a perfume called Nuit de Cellophane (Night of Cellophane) I don't see how anything can be off-limits with this house.

    Re: Serge Lutens La Myrrhe US release

    A bell jar of this popped up on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/Serge-Lutens-La-Myrrhe-2-5-oz-bell-jar-Fille-en-Aiguilles-and-Chergui-samples-/221122965477) with a rather interesting description:

    Re: Lubin Idole EDT vs EDP

    *gasp* WHAT?! Al Oudh and Idole de Lubin EdP are similar to your nose??

    I have a sample of the EdT on the way, once it arrives I'll do a side by side with my EdP. I bought my bottle of EdP based...

    Re: I ruined my Aventus!

    Isn't it winter in Australia right now? I'd let it relax a day or two then try it, even 4 weeks in light shouldn't cause such drastic change. Even if it was left in the car, just the way a car is...

    Re: Black Afgano projection/sillage

    One spray on a little strip went 30 feet? That's crazy, I don't have that experience at all with this one. I think extraits tend to wear a bit closer to the skin but the duration is impressive. I go...

    Re: Lubin Idole EDT vs EDP

    I've been wearing the EdP a lot recently and if anything it's a real compliment getter. Many people seem to prefer the EdT but I really can't notice too much of a difference, though it's been about a...
